A mountain in this vicinity named Mullaghnedryny is mentioned in the Civil Survey of 1654-56 as part of the boundary of the barony of Owney and Arra. It may be this peak or a lower shoulder to the west. The name seems to represent Ir. Mullach na Droighní, 'summit of the blackthorn'.   Silvermine Mountains W Top is the 598th highest place in Ireland.

New Comment: Why no trig or cairn?
by TommyV  1 Nov 2018
From the car park on the road that passes through the Silvermines as mentioned by simon3, there is a nice wood loop walk to the West of here. Halfway around the loop, it's possible to leave the loop at R82867 69504 B and head West along a defined path for about 1 kilometre to the highest point on the Silvermines. Silvermine West Top is an unmarked height of 489 metres. If time is on your side you can continue on another kilometre over to the unnamed summit as mentioned by mcrtchly. On the more direct route back to the car park you will take in Silvermines East Top if you had taken the lower loop trail on the way out. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/489/comment/20148/
